In my 13 years of teaching and headships, I have not come across a school that is so welcoming, academically focused and globally minded. BDWIS is certainly a unique co-educational day boarding school and I am extremely proud to be leading it.
As the Principal, I am honored to be a part of the faculty and staff who are committed in working together to provide the best education. Every student receives individual and personal attention and the maximum comforts possible. It is our endeavor to make education a purposeful, meaningful and enjoyable experience. This is accomplished through our focus on creating an academically rigorous learning environment that promotes career goals through standards driven by curriculum and student-centered interaction as well as strong extracurricular programs. It is our desire to partner with families, the community, and the corporate world to better support and inspire our students towards excellence.
A complete grown personality has to have a balance of physical, emotional, social and spiritual development. The new generation of children exhibit skills and talents of unparalleled genius. The future belongs to those who are Inquirers, Knowledge Seekers, Thinkers, Principled, Communicators, Open-minded, Risk takers and Reflective. The aim of the school is to develop the best that is latent in children and to prepare them for the challenges of the changing world through the encouragement of Creativity, Self-discipline, High Intellectual achievements and Physical fitness. Guided by these virtues, we run our programs, keeping in mind the potential of a child and a way to identify the inherent potential of a child and then to nurture it.
